Ernst & Young has chosen Dr. Alan Ulsifer, CEO and co-founder of FYidoctors, to be the winner of its Entrepreneur of the Year 2012 award for Canada.
This award recognizes Dr. Alan Ulsifer’s “vision of merging optometry practices into a single organization.” Since it was founded in 2008, FYidoctors has expanded to include over 100 practices across Canada.
“Dr. Alan Ulsifer’s achievements are no small feat,” says Colleen McMorrow, partner and national director, Entrepreneur of the Year. “His innovative vision of merging full scope optometric practices into a single entity — the first of its kind in the country — transformed Canada’s optometry industry. These kinds of innovative solutions that overcome a struggling economy take strong leadership and an even stronger team.”
This is the 19th year that Ernst & Young has honoured the country’s most impressive entrepreneurs. Winners are chosen based on a number of factors, including their vision, leadership, financial performance and social responsibility.
